Arthur Squibb, jun. ((d. 1679/80). Lawyer, republican and Fifth Monarchist. He had sat in Barebone's Parliament in 1653 and was associated with the extremists. In 1656 he was involved in a Fifth Monarchist uprising. He had been a Commissioner for Compounding 1650-4 and 1659-60, and in early 1660 successfully claimed Downing's tellership in the Exchequer, together with the house that went with it, by virtue of a reversion granted him in 1640. In 1671 he was briefly imprisoned for a Fifth Monarchy sermon but thereafter lived quietly in Chertsey, Surrey. His Royalist brother Laurence (d. 1674) held a tellership in the '60s. (L&M Companion)
